We spent one of our evenings in Florence at Teatro del Sale and could not recommend it enough. The night consisted of a bombardment of different Tuscan / Italian dishes followed by a show - a local blues band this particular night.

Great food! But as expected my lack of Italian meant I couldn't understand the performance!! The atmosphere more than made up for it along with a large consumption of wine..

We were able to book this wonderful restaurant via our hotel on the day that we went. You need to arrive at about 7.10 to complete the form to become a member of the theatre (this is something to do with the licensing and costs €7) you then pay €30 for a 20 course taster meal, that is served as...

If you are looking for a different experience while staying in Florence, this is the place to go. I do not think many of the people taking the "typical tour bus tour" know of this place, however the "locals" do. The price includes dinner and show. The show venue varies. The food is actually quite good. Everything is in Italian.... More

For a unique experience, make sure you visit this restaurant theatre. The combination of a renaissance venue, great food and a quality performance is unique. We were there on 10th June where Francesca Andreoni was singing with Matteo Addabbo and his group. What a classy act, what delicious food, all presented with great flair. Bravissimi!

Very tasty food served funnily, in the theatre style in an old theatre hall. You get the feeling that you belong in some secret circle of culinarists!

We do not speak Italian but love theatre so we bought tickets for the evening performance at this UNIQUE theatre!! Much to our delight, the performance was preceded by a feast divided into courses each dramatically announced by the presiding chef! The theatre itself is in a 14th century hall with a grand kitchen behind a window on the right.... More

My wife and I went to Teatro del Sale on September 2011 after reading great reviews about it online. We took a cab from our hotel and were dropped off at a nearby piazza. We waited for it to open and had some drinks while we people watched. It was very cool because we seemed to be the only tourists... More
